Good collection of commercial reggae tracks BUT...,
This review is from: Now That's What I Call Reggae (Audio CD)
I feel I must let Amazon customers know a few problems with the tracklist. The major problem with this collection is that the record label have used what sounds like a hideous low quality MP3 of Kevin Lyttle's "Turn Me On" on CD1. It sounds dreadful on any sound system, which is a shame as I have the CD single of this track and that sounds fine. You can hear how awful it sounds by listening to the samples on the download album.
I can only presume someone at the label who is nearly deaf chose to use this version. I don't think this is acceptable really in 2012 and from a label as well known as Universal. If this compilation was on a dodgy label and I'd bought it in a garden centre, I might not be so bothered.
Also some information for the anoraks - the versions of UB40's "(I Can't Help) Falling In Love With You", Shabba Ranks' "Mr Loverman" and Dawn Penn's "You Don't Love Me" are the album versions, so if you are hoping to hear the versions you heard on the radio you will be disappointed. I also noticed that some tracks fade early too (CJ Lewis and Red Dragon).
In conclusion I would recommend getting this if you don't own any reggae music and you don't mind skipping the Kevin Lyttle track, but it's a shame that the full radio edits of some tracks were not used.
